Hebrews 7:21-22New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

21 but he with an oath, through the one who said to him:

“The Lord has sworn, and he will not repent:
    ‘You are a priest forever’”—

22 to that same degree has Jesus [also] become the guarantee of an [even] better covenant.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 7:22 An [even] better covenant: better than the Mosaic covenant because it will be eternal, like the priesthood of Jesus upon which it is based. Hb 7:12 argued that a change of priesthood involves a change of law; since “law” and “covenant” are used correlatively, a new covenant is likewise instituted.
